government to carrying out activities in violation of international law and the domestic laws of many other countries. for north korea these criminal activities are viewed as necessary to maintain the power of the regime with no regard for the fact that they are corrosive to international law and order. so the question is, what steps can we take to combat north korea's illicit activities, and can our efforts to prevent these activities be used to pressure north korea to abandon its nuclear weapons and ballistic missile programs? now, i just heard on the news this morning that the agreement has been made ostensibly with china to punish north korea for its missile-launching nuclear tests. i hope that china will not do what it's done in the past and agree to sanctions and then just erode those sanctions so the sanctions really never took hold. i hope that china will finally understand that the north korean regime is a threat to stability in that region of the world and in many regions of the world, because as chairman royce pointed out, korea, north korea is a rogue state helping countries lik

and furious, i was told by whistle blowers that there were gaps in federal laws concerning straw purchasers which should be addressed, and this is our opportunity to do it. mr. chairman, you have worked with me on your bill making many changes at my request. they have made the bill better and reduced the negative side effects of previous versions. i trust you think so as well because you have included the changes in the new bill. the new bill in your substitute amendment also included a revised bill by senators gillibrand and kirk on the subject of gun trafficking. those revisions also reflect changes that i asked senator gillibrand to make, and i think it would be worthwhile to outline all the changes that have been made to the bill since they were first introduced. i think they demonstrate good faith of the chairman and senator gillibrand. for instance, senator gillibrand's bill originally would have made it a federal crime to transfer two or more guns if that person knew that the result would be a violation of state or local law. that would have given states and localities a one-way ince

of the children and education. we've made sure that our law enforcement is taken care of, but we've also made those difficult choices early on that washington could really learn from in budgeting. i congratulate congressman messer for bringing this particular bill. it's a good government bill. i know the other side of the aisle is talking about the sequester, and i find it ironic that "the washington times" today has a headline that says, 400 more jobs were created in spite of the sequester. so i don't believe that the sky is falling here. this legislation requires the president to do some simple math and include with his budget, should he choose to submit one, an estimate of the cost of the deficit per taxpayer. taxpayers just simply deserve to know how much they owe for washington's out-of-control spending. after all, every dime that the federal government borrows is saddled on this generation and the next generation and generations to follow. right now the cost of washington's $16 trillion of national debt totals more than $147,000 per taxpayer. in fact, approximately every minute, mr. spe

[laughter] when i use a word, when i use a word like humpty dumpty, it means just what i choose it to mean, neither more, nor less. now, the magic of this dueling, call it taxonomy, means that because it is a penalty the court could go forward to consider its legality. because, but because it is a tax and not a penalty, it is a lawful exercise of the taxing power, not an unlawful exerlz of the power to regulate commerce. and a related irony is that five justices concluded that congress did not have the power under the commerce clause to regulate doing nothing. that is to say not buying health insurance. but five justices -- only chief justice in both camps -- held that congress does have the power to impose a tax for doing the very same nothing. not buying health insurance. so the constitutional law professor, president, who insisted that obamacare was constitutional was right all along. but he was right becaus

of the law in three ways. enforcement of the law at the border, enforcement of the law at the workplace to insure only people entitled to get a job are in fact hired and to insure people don't overstay their visas. if the administration is signaling it has no real commitment to enforcing the law, which this administration seems to be doing, then it will be very, very difficult for those people who are wary of the administration to make the other part of the bargain, namely to grant the citizenship for illegal status. that is why i think it is very problematic with respect to getting comprehensive immigration reform. maybe, i'm not going to say the white house doesn't want it because they appear to want it but if they really want it think need to be bending over backward to demonstrate to members of congress we will do everything they can to enforce the law. martha: what about the jeb bush issue, any thoughts on that he have about i let you go? >> just briefly. it seems to me was not saying a contradiction this what i'm saying before and what i'm saying now. it is all part of the grand b

, but we now recognize the shortfalls. one primary concern is how the law defines "good teachers it peaked and no child of behind's rigorous -- good teachers." nclb changed the rigorous standards. it sounds great in theory, but it meant schools were forced to value and educators credentials over their ability to effectively and successfully teach children. we all want qualified teachers in the classroom, but we must recognize that it cannot recognize simply by degrees and diplomas alone. recognizing antiquated teaching requirements alone are not helping them on this track in bringing promising teachers to the classroom. some have been working on better alternatives. a growing number of states and school districts have started developing new teacher evaluation systems to incorporate student performance data. not only does this data help measure but a teacher success, and also provides educators with the buyout -- the back to analyze and revised methods. i am pleased to welcome one of my fellow hoosier educators and talk about the importance of teacher valuation at the local level. tennessee

a severe mental illness. i was able to go to law school and establish it for myself. in terms of having other views on the panel, it could leave -- lead to an increase in stigma. my other point is that the way that we're looking at mental health services from the perspective of inpatient hospitalization, they have been looking at community-based care. host: let's let the congressman reply. guest: some people in america believe in such things as the pure services -- pierre services. they work very well with alcohol and -- peer services. they were very hat -- very well with alcohol and drug abuse. severe violence, there is high risk. the other reason that we're not having someone with severe mental illness on a panel, that is not what this panel is about. this is about telling congress people what it is like for families. that is important. i want members of congress the year from parents. since we are talking about severe mental illness that relates to violence, i will not bring someone out of prison to talk about what they kill people. we are not going to do that. that is a dangerous si
